Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for traveling This paddle is great when traveling with an inflatable kayak. The paddle fits (barely) in the backpack for my Innova Safari. Sometimes it takes all my strength to separate the blades from the aluminum shaft. But I wouldn't want the blades to be wobbly, either. The aluminum shaft definitely feels noodly when I paddle furiously in big waves. But I'm still in control on class II and II+ rapids. There seem to be very few quality 4-piece paddles on the market. This one is satisfactory for most touring and recreational applications.
